      <Abstract>Objective: To find out the incidence of urinary tract infection (UTI) in children presenting with febrile seizures (FS) and to analyze the bacteriological profile in culture positive individuals, Study design:  Prospective, descriptive, longitudinal study in Masonic medical center-casualty. Totally, 216children admitted with febrile seizure during the year 2010-2011 were studied for the UTI as source of fever. Outcome measures: Age sex, type of seizure previous episode, and family history of seizure,laboratory reports and clinical diagnosis of the source of infection were recorded and analyzed.Results: Nearly half of the (53.7%) FS occurred between 1 and 2 years followed by 1st year of life (24%). Out of 13 postive cultures, 9 were found in females which show more risk of UTI in female children. Sevenchildren under 1 year had UTI and 5 in the 1-3 Year age group. The children with non- Escherchia coli positive culture had significant congenital abnormalities.</Abstract>
